    Planning on picking up some clay dot powder tomorrow as I've read favorable reports on this site. I'm interested in some tried and true recipes . I typically load gun club and STS hulls. Thanks, Gary

    Remington hull<br>
    1 oz. 8 shot<br>
    DR RT12 wad (TGT-12)<br>
    16.7 grains Claydot<br>
    CCI or Federal 209A primer

    Both are in the Hodgdon data base; the difference is 1 grain of powder. The pressures are in the high 9000s.

    one oz. load using AA or Rem hulls - Winchester primer, Jammer wad or Winchester pink wad and 16.3 grains of Claydot. Very little recoil and breaks targets. Oh, use 7.5 mag shot.
